BSMdigest asked a variety of experts across the industry: What is the one piece of advice you would give someone about application performance management in the cloud?

9. Track Linkages Between Virtual Services and Physical Devices

In a highly dynamic environment that by design, is constantly changing, you must be able to visually see the "as-is" state and be able to rapidly pinpoint the root cause when there is an impact event to your application. When you receive a complaint that the application is slow in the cloud, you now have to troubleshoot the virtual and physical layers to address. If you can track the linkages between the virtual services and the physical devices that power them and monitor the overall health of the service, you can greatly reduce the time needed to find the issue and get the right team involved to fix.
